孩子通常活泼好动，好奇心强，喜欢丰富多 彩的事物，不喜欢枯燥、抽象的知识。因此，彰 显孩子的自然天性，帮助孩子提高阅读兴趣就显 得十分重要。教材中幼儿英语故事和游戏重点应 在培养孩子对自然和社会的探求和好奇，将丰富 的内容融入到多种活动形式的英语教学之中。并 充分调动积极性参与到活动中去，用英语引导他 们认识新事物，学会表达自己，真正做到在“玩” 中学，让孩子不再抵触英语。
? 优秀的英语读物，一定是由来于儿童喜闻 乐见的、与幼儿生活经验密切联系的事物，这样 幼儿容易理解和迁移。教材应注重经验和情境， 将幼儿的日常生活融入到英语教学中，使得孩子 既轻松学习英语，又能在丰富多彩的生活中汲取 营养。例如幼儿从吃饭、游玩、抚摸小宠物、去 公园等一系列的生活故事，经常接触到类似的事 情，就能将语言和当时的语境相联系，这种情景 教学重复性高，有利于孩子及时复习、巩固。
